I love that the #Luneta management removed the steel fences at the entrance of the park. Looks so much more inviting. Well done. #vivamanila

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar

Bagac, Bataan

Finally had the chance to visit the controversial Resort at Bagac, Bataan.

Why controversial?

The resort is actually an assemblage of some turn of the century “Bahay na Bato” from the different provinces of the country. The houses are dismantled at their original locations to be reassembled and built in Bagac, Bataan. Some heritage advocates frown at this as dismantling the old houses robs the authenticity and the sense of place and history of the structure and the place itself.

But that contentious issue aside, I find the place nice and good, but of course it lacks the authenticity and charm the original Filipino - Hispanic towns like Vigan and Intramuros has. I think that can’t be just manufactured of forced.

Also, they are “reconstructing” Binondo’s Hotel de Oriente in their lot too. Or they are just building a building in the style of the said defunct hotel.

Have you visited the place already? What are your thoughts on this?

Zoological Park of #Paris
Last month, the Parc Zoologique de Paris reopened after a six-year renovation by Bernard Tschumi Architects. A branch of the National Museum of Natural History, it is commonly referred to as the Zoo de Vincennes, because it is located in the Bois de Vincennes, a 2,459-acre park on the city’s east side.
